Picked some wildflowers on our walk today and now they’re adding a little sunshine to our apartment :)

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:

“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”

To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.

The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.

Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?

Perfect

rendzina:

this has been on my mind all day. change or accept. stay or go. speak or don’t. so what are you going to do about it? what would radical action look like for your life? what is bold? where do you only dream of going? and how are you going to get there?
bold moves make all the difference in this game. make a move.

WORD.

Maybe this is optimism

Today someone posted “I’m eager to see what the future holds.” It was part of a bigger story, but this sentence kept coming back to me.

I’m eager to see what the future holds.

I’m eager to see that the future holds.

Ok, now you’re stuck with it too.

So, doesn’t that scare you a little? Such a little sentence inflated with so much meaning. It makes me shake in my boots a little bit.

Here I am, picking summer courses, making travel plans, and then this thought of “my future” just takes hold of me. 

I wish I wasn’t so scared, but as a planner, the thought of this looming future in a few years, called the “unknown” unnerves me because I cannot fathom it. 

I could be in any place in the country with any person with any job. Where will my family’s health be? My health? Will we all be happy?

This is where I guess I need to leave it all up to a little fate and faith and see what happens. Live today fully. Get excited about the future too — even though it’s looking pretty unpredictable. 

I don’t get excited about unpredictable, but, hey, I’m gonna give it a whirl. Maybe this is true optimism.

New mantra:

I’m eager to see what the future holds.
